Christina Milian is married to French R&B singer Matt Pokora. The duo wedded in December 2020 and have a child together. Before her marriage to Pokora, she was briefly married to The Dream, an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, from 2009 to 2011.
Christina Milian has been with a number of different other men before and between her two marriages, but this article will focus on exploring the actress’ life as a married woman.
Who is Christina Milian Married To?
As previously mentioned, Christina Milian is married to French R&B singer Matt Pokora. Milian and Pokora reportedly met for the first time in August 2017 at a restaurant in France. Their first meeting wasn’t all that because the circumstances surrounding their meeting weren’t exactly what Christina had in mind when she sat down, presumably for a meal, in the restaurant.
As fate would have it, Pokora was also in the restaurant at the same time as Milian. Every indication points to the fact that both Matt and Christina came into the restaurant alone. The French have a reputation for being very romantic, and the restaurant manager felt it was his duty to live up to that reputation. He, however, had to find a common ground to spark any conversation between the would-be-couple, and he found the perfect one in the fact that they were both musicians.
On that basis, he went ahead to suggest to both of them to chat while they waited for their meal. Understandably, Christina was hesitant to just strike up a conversation with a total stranger simply because they were both musicians. She gradually warmed up to the handsome stranger, and their initial conversation turned into a full-blown relationship sometime later.
It was a relationship that would eventually metamorphose into a marriage as Milian and Pokora reportedly exchanged their vows at a Paris town hall on December 15, 2020. Their wedding wasn’t that elaborate and Christina’s wedding outfit of a simple white satin dress, as opposed to a large wedding gown, emphasizes that fact.
There is currently no piece of information about what Matt himself wore to the wedding, but one would also assume that it was something as simple as what his wife wore. Probably the biggest news of the event was that the couple had the privilege of having the Mayor of Paris officiate their wedding.
After exchanging marital vows, the wedding party, which included the couple’s friends and family, proceeded to have a private lunch at the Les Jardins du Faubourg restaurant. Coincidentally or by design, the restaurant belonged to one of their mutual friends, and it was also a fitting way to celebrate their union as a result of the fact that they met in a restaurant just like that one just over three years before.
Christina Milian’s Husband is a French Singer
It has been well stated that Christina Milian’s current husband is a well-known French singer who specializes in the R&B genre. Milian’s husband was born Matthieu Tota on September 26, 1985, in Strasbourg, France. He is the son of footballer Andre Tota and his ex-wife, Brigitte Tota. A 13-year-old Matthieu bore witness to the dissolution of his parent’s marriage in 1998.
Matt Tota attended an elementary school located in Hohberg before getting his college degree from College Paul-Emile Victor in Mundolsheim. He also bagged an additional degree in an as yet unidentified course of study from Lycee Aristide Briand in Schiltigheim near Strasbourg.
He wanted to be a footballer in his younger days, and it’s easy to see why. He wanted to be like his father. Matt ultimately decided to be a musician, and when it was time to pick a stage name, he went for Matt Pokora. Pokora is the Polish word for humility, and it was a name he chose after having a conversation with his Polish grandmother.
Matt Pokora’s decision to be a musician has proven to be an inspired one as he has achieved a measurable level of success in that field. He has been active since 2003 and has 9 solo studio albums to show for his hard work, with the most recent one coming in 2019.
Matt Pokora and Christina Milian Have Been Married For Over a Year
Christina Milian and her French husband have been married couple for over one year now. Barring a crazy and unforeseen turn of events, they will be celebrating their 2nd marriage anniversary on December 15, 2022. The couple has two children together, sons Isaiah and Keena Tota.
Isaiah Tota was born on January 20, 2020, just a few days over eleven months before his parents’ wedding. His brother, Keena, was also conceived out of wedlock and eventually arrived on April 23, 2021. Isaiah is currently 3 years old while his brother Keena is 2 years old.
Christina Milian was Previously Married to The-Dream
At one point in her life, Christina Milian was known as Christina Flores-Nash, a name she essentially bore as a result of her marriage to American singer, songwriter, and record producer Terius Hagert Youngdell Nash, popularly known as and addressed by his stage name The-Dream. Christina Milian and The Dream tied the knot on September 4, 2009.
The former couple reportedly started dating in February 2009 but made their relationship public in March of the same year. Not long after, the couple announced that they were getting married. An engagement was announced in June 2009 in Las Vegas, and a wedding at the Little White Chapel, Las Vegas, Nevada, followed on September 4, 2009.
A more conventional wedding ceremony was hosted in Rome, Italy, before the couple renewed their vows in the United States in front of their friends and family.
Christina Milian’s Ex-Husband is a Record Producer
As previously stated, The Dream was born Terius Youngdell Hegbert Nash on September 20, 1977, in Rockingham, North Carolina. Not much is known about the rapper’s father, but he reportedly moved to Atlanta, Georgia, with his mother when he was just two years old. 13 years later and aged 15, The Dream watched as his mother was buried after her death in 1992.
Christina’s ex-husband revealed that his mother’s death was the catalyst and inspiration he needed to start writing songs, particularly songs that promote the affairs and well-being of women. The Dream also credits his grandfather, who he moved in with after the death of his mother, for being a positive influence on his life.
He has always had an interest in music, right from his elementary school days when he learned how to play the trumpet, drums, and guitar. That foundation has led to seven studio albums and all-around success in the field of music. He is a renowned songwriter, singer, and producer whose influence has been felt in quite a number of other artists’ music, such as Rihanna’s Umbrella.
Christina Milian and The Dream Were Married For Less Than a Year
Christina Milian’s marriage to The Dream ended in less than a year. The Dream reportedly filed for a divorce in Georgia on February 17, 2010, and the former couple announced their separation on July 12, 2010, before finalizing their divorce on October 23, 2011.
She considers Violet Nash, the daughter she had with the producer on February 26, 2010, as the only good thing that came out of her marriage with him. She once spoke of the living hell she experienced while she was married to the singer. It has also been revealed that Christina Milian’s first marriage ended as a result of her ex-husband being intimate with his assistant.
Christina Milian’s daughter with The Dream was her first at the time but the rapper’s fourth, who already had three kids from a previous marriage. He now has nine children from subsequent relationships, but his first with Christina is currently 13.
